Ready, set, street closures. That is pretty much what will happen Sunday morning near Culver City when the Herbalife Triathlon LA gets underway.
Culver City residents and others can expect congestion and delays Sunday, according to race officials. This year, to protect the safety of competitors and spectators, there will be no vehicular crossing points along the route.
Street closures on Sunday will be managed by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Department of Transportation. Vehicles must be parked off affected streets, including Venice Boulevard on the border of Culver City.
The closing and opening of streets impacted by the cycle and run portion of the triathlon will be managed in waves in three sectors:
- Sector 1 – Venice Boulevard to Fairfax/Wilshire (approximately 6:50-9:30 a.m.)
- Sector 2 – Fairfax/Wilshire to Olympic/Cherry (approximately 7:10-11:50 p.m.)
- Sector 3 – Olympic/Cherry to 1st/Hope Avenue (approximately 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m.)
The Culver CityBus will also be affected by the road closures. Bus lines 1, 3 and 6 will experience detours and potential service delays, according to the city. All impacted bus routes have signs posted at stops announcing the delays and detours.
No freeways will be closed due to the triathlon. Race officials recommend drivers go to their nearest freeway on-ramp to the 405 to travel north or south, and the 10 to travel east and west.
